Summary

Trust is a much-used word within computing – software and hardware – but is ill-defined and even worse-understood.  Certain elements – such as “trusted boot” are defined, but there is no overarching, theory-based understanding of what trust is, how it is built up, shared between systems and entities within a system.  Most uses depend on a fuzzy understanding of descriptions of trust in the social sciences, which address different fields, and have limited applicability within computing.  The book aims to lead readers from basic ideas of trust, explaining the importance of having a thorough and accepted grounding in related concepts, through to a sophisticated understanding of how trust can be discussed, defined and managed in various spheres of computing.  Anchored in the importance of understanding and quantifying risk, it will draw on social science, computer science and examples in various systems from hardware to software, complex systems, open source communities and all the way through a description of trust domains, an emerging concept which provides an alternative to standard layered security, and goes beyond the sometimes naive assumptions of “zero trust”.
